after installing package(s) skype - 2.2.0.35-fc10.i586 (fedora.i586.rpm), the retrieving software information script runs, then the resolving dependencies script runs, followed by an error message "Error resolving dependencies - unable to resolve dependencies for some packages selected for information", details of which - "Missing Dependency: qt-x11 >= 4.4 is needed by package skype". Anyone up there for helping with an idiot guide to how to resolve this, please?

linpus is based on Fedora but I do not know the differences and would not expect it to work. I would try the downloading and installing the static version. This one should include all the necessary stuff so dependencies should not be a problem.

I have not played with linpus in awhile so can not be much help in that area. You might be better off installing a main stream distribution if you are planning on installing much software.

hi and thanks,
I took the Fedora suggestion from a website giving "ten tweaks for a new Acer Aspire One - "The AA1 is a great communications device, but Skype doesn't come pre-installed. Head over to the Skype website and download the VoIP app. You're looking for the Linux versions and, in particular, the release for Fedora 7, the Linux distribution on which the AA1's Linpus Linux is based." The Skype site currently offers for Fedora 13+ which is the download I took.
I have tried your suggestion of downloading a static version (don't know what that means though) - skype_static-2.2.0.35.tar.bz2, but I don't know the steps for installing that (to see if it will work), other than to open a terminal..... total nonk with Linux I'm afraid. I have considered installing a mainstream distribution but, other than wanting Skype on my AA1, I'm very happy with it, so any help with trying to instal the static version would be much appreciated.
regards
Mike
